“Tis the season to give”…and that’s exactly what the Active 20-30 Club of Bakersfield does best. The Club’s annual event the “Christmas Experience” aims to provide in-need families with a Christmas they couldn’t otherwise have. Each year, through the assistance and generosity of the people and businesses in the community, our Christmas Experience touches the lives of dozens of families and hundreds of children.
The Club provides wrapped presents for every child, plus a food voucher and Christmas tree. Annually the club raises over $35,000 for this event, all of which goes to the community. After all of the funds are raised, the 20-30 Club teams up with several other organizations to shop, wrap and deliver the hundreds of gifts to needy families in Kern County. In 2019, we were able to provide Christmas to nearly 350 children!
- $100 in gifts per child
- Christmas Tree with ornaments (1 per family)
- Food gift card (1 per family)
- Children in the family must be under 18 years of age
- The Family should have a significant financial need
- The Family must be located within Kern County
